Kouéno: Transforming Slabwood into Benches

Post Image

Lucas Hosteing’s Kouéno project is a testament to creativity and sustainability in furniture design. His innovative approach transforms overlooked slabwood, typically discarded by woodworkers, into stunning benches. This custom furniture design showcases Hosteing’s multidisciplinary design studio skills, merging his background in cabinetmaking with his product design mastery from ECAL.

What sets Kouéno apart is its use of undesirable lumber, highlighting Hosteing’s commitment to sustainable practices. By repurposing offcuts from sawmills, he not only reduces waste but also creates unique, environmentally conscious pieces. The benches’ design reflects Hosteing’s creative design studio ethos, featuring mitre-cut planks that form distinct volumes and seats resembling inverted trees.

Hosteing’s project challenges conventional notions of woodworking, embracing the raw, asymmetrical beauty of slabwood. His work embodies the essence of a creative design studio, where unconventional materials and techniques converge to create functional art. The integration of slabwood into interiors in its rawest form adds a rustic yet modern touch, showcasing the versatility of this often-overlooked material.
